CSWO has neither been bought nor has compromised: Agnes

SHILLONG: CSWO president Agnes Kharshiing on Monday said that the women’s group would continue to demand implementation of the Inner Line Permit, but made it clear that the organisation would attempt to achieve the same through legal means.

Addressing a press conference here, Kharshiing clarified that CSWO has neither been ‘bought’ nor it has ‘agreed to a compromise’ on the issue of ILP.

She, further, stated that the group is not backing out from the demand of ILP but it does not support violence. “Youths are being misguided by certain elements to indulge in violence which the group does not support,” Kharshiing added.

The CSWO president, however, came out with a fresh allegation that some land grabbers had planned to creating disturbance during the public meeting on Saturday so that the NGO leaders could be booked under the MPDA.

She also alleged that during the recent protest demonstration by CSWO and KWWADA, some vested interests had intentionally created ruckus which was done in connivance with the police intelligence wing which is helping the land grabbers and attempting to book the CSWO leaders.

Kharshiing reminded that all acts of violence cannot be attributed to the NGOs and the real perpetrators should be brought to book.

With regards to the alleged torching of the BSNL warehouse at Mawlai, the women’s group demanded that the investigation be handed over to the CBI to find out if there was any hidden agenda behind the incident.
